    Well, i have a v3.03 firmware psp and i want to change the theme. Whenever I do that "Turn off psp, then hold R and turn on PSP" thing, a recovery menu does NOT show up? Does anyone no why?

    downgrade to 1.5 first, upgrade to an OE. Then you can do all that cool stuff.

    well, you can't do any homebrew without first downgrade. And the only way to downgrade is through unpatched gta: lcs. I'd check with your local game store/rental for used games first.

    nope....its Sony 1.50 or nothing when it comes to homebrew (yeah it works on these OE's -- but thats because OE's are new fw n 150 sony combind)

    in other words m8:
    if you do not have a psp with the sony 1.50 firmware update on it, then you cannot do jack except play UMDs n listen to music...watch video...........browse the internet...etc


    it took me only 5 phone calls to GAMESTOP's around my city, and 3 car trips...i got LCS for 17 bucks....expensive? i think not....

    the ones in stores cost more, because kids do not realize that it is not *unpatched* -- n sony's making a killing off of em...


    please make sure you have the right version before you say the downgrade doesnt work....cause it does....on ALL psps...


    have patience n go get that ish kid!!!!!

    so you can actually call ebgames and gamestop.etc. and ask for an Unpatched GTA LCS? (Answer this plzzzzz) if i could that would be good. no that wouldn't be good...that'd be great

    Thanks m8s who are helping.

    ebgames and gamestop have a 7-day return policy on any used games.
    just buy them and try, if they are patched return them.

    why ask us? give it a try. most they can do is ignore you.

    you could check the back of the package. if it says copyrighted 2005 then it's unpatched, if it's 2006 then it's patched. However this do not always work, because gamestop/eb have game separated from the box, and sometimes there is just a generic case. so your best bet is buy it and try it out.

    if you think it takes too long, then just sit on your hands then. I'm sure your psp will downgrade itself faster, if you stare at it long enough.
